IMPLANTOLOGY

The dental implant is an artificial root. It is inserted in the upper or lower arch in order to replace the natural root and ensure the recovery of correct mouth chewing.

Implant bridge.

The placement of the bridge on the implants is performed with the same procedure as the placement of the same on real teeth. Quite an effective alternative that solves situations where the patient has a significant lack of teeth; in both the lower and upper jaws.

Similar to placing a tooth on the implant, the bridge on the implant can also be subject to failure. To avoid the risk of compromising the entire bridge structure, it is essential to follow a few rules:

  1. Take care of oral hygiene;
  2. Pay more attention to cleaning the parts that support the bridge;
  3. Periodic visits to the dentist.

“All-on-4” technique.

This technique is basically the same as placing a fixed prosthesis on six implants, but in this case 4 are placed, which serve to fix the prosthesis.

The choice between the six or four implant techniques is influenced by the patient’s bone density and other medical criteria that he must meet.

Both techniques, like placing a fixed denture on four or six implants, are a very effective way to remove removable dentures once and for all and restore the feeling of having your own teeth.

“All-on-4” suitable in cases where:

  • The patient has no teeth in one of the jaws
  • The patient suffers from periodontitis
  • The patient does not have sufficient jaw bone density

“All-On-6” technique.

If you have lost all your teeth or have removable dentures, a very effective way to restore the feeling of having teeth again is the “All-on-6” method. Thanks to this technique you can say goodbye to old prostheses with fixed prostheses placed on 6 implants. Through this modern and innovative technique it is possible to place all the teeth (12 or 14 teeth) in both the lower and upper jaws.

How is this technique applied?

The positioning of the fixed prosthesis on 6 implants takes place in two phases.

  • The first phase consists in the placement of the implant.
  • The second phase, which takes place after three or six months, consists in positioning a fixed prosthesis.

Our clinic also offers the placement of temporary prostheses during the waiting period of 3 to 6 months for the process of integrating the implant with the bone, making sure that the patient does not completely lose the functional side and of course the aesthetic side during this period.
